You could try adding the date and time as an argument when calling an update
so it'll be a new link to the browser but calling the same file. I read this
as a way of forcing the browser to reload a new copy of a JPG for a web cam
page.

it'll be like this:
<script>
function reload_info(my_frame, my_file){
frames[my_frame].location.href= my_file+'?d=' +new Date().getTime();
}
</script>

and replace you current code at the onclick attr with
onclick="reload_info('IFrameName','./sbctss2/sysinfo.txt');

hope it helps,
Hector
